A giant congratulations to Drew & Will on the arrival of their daughter Frankie Barrymore Kopelman! People.com shared the news on their website!
Drew Barrymore‘s own heart just got a little bigger: her baby girl is here!
The actress and star of the upcoming comedy, Blended, 39, and her husband, art advisor Will Kopelman, 36, welcomed their second child on Tuesday, April 22, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.
“Happy to announce that today we are the proud parents of our second daughter, Frankie Barrymore Kopelman,” the couple tell PEOPLE in a statement. “Olive has a new little sister, and everyone is healthy and happy!”
After keeping much of her pregnancy with their firstborn, now 19 months, under wraps, Barrymore decided to take a different approach following her November announcement that she was expecting a second child.
“Last time I never commented on it and people just stalked me the entire time. So yes, it’s happening, it’s true. I tried to keep it a secret for as long as possible,” the Find It in Everything author told PEOPLE.
The mom-to-be — who confirmed in December that she was expecting another girl — stayed true to her heart-themed style through much of the awards season, but insisted pregnancy wasn’t the time to strive for perfection.
“You’re not supposed to look perfect while you’re making babies. Making babies is the perfection,” she told Women’s Health.
Instead, Barrymore took the time to enjoy her experience and indulge in her cravings — even if that meant a little extra weight gain.
“I don’t ever pose, ‘I’m just so fabulous and I lose it like that.’ I want to enjoy the pasta right now! What’s 10 lbs.?” she told Ellen DeGeneres in January.
But perhaps most exciting? Adding another daughter to the family.
“I’m relieved I’m having another girl. I have everything I need. It’s all about hand-me-downs and room sharing and all that stuff,” she told PEOPLE in February. “I’m pretty psyched about that!”
This weekend is the MTV Movie awards and MTV talked with Adam & Drew about their Best Kiss Advice.
Perhaps she doesn’t know it, but Bella Thorne just worked in the company of MTV Movie Awards royalty.
Thorne, best known for playing CeCe Jones on Disney Channel’s “Shake It Up,” will soon be seen on the big-screen in “Blended,” the upcoming comedy about a bad blind date that blossoms into true romance. “Blended” stars Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, the winners of a combined total of eight Movie Awards statuettes, for their work in “The Wedding Singer” and “50 First Dates.”
It’s early days yet, but maybe — just maybe — some of that Movie Awards magic rubbed off on Thorne. If nothing else, the young actress has her sights set on a Movie Awards category she hopes to one day dominate.
“The Best Kiss award,” she told MTV’s Josh Horowitz with a big grin. “I love that one. It’s my favorite!”
Thorne even has her eye on one of this year’s Best Shirtless Performance nominees as her future kissing partner: “The Wolf of Wall Street” actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
“I love Leonardo DiCaprio,” she said. “When I meet him for the first time, I’m going to be like, ‘Oh, thank goodness we’ve finally met, because now I don’t have to plan the wedding alone!’”
That forward declaration aside, Thorne ought to start planning how to win the Best Kiss award now — and she doesn’t need to look any further for advice than Sandler and Barrymore, who previously scored a Best Kiss award of their own for their rain-soaked “50 First Dates” make-out moment.
“It does so much for the kiss,” Sandler said of how rainstorms affect smooch scenes. “It tightens up the body. You feel chilly. You’re cold. You’re tight. Your nipples are way out there.”
“Yeah,” Barrymore added, “mine too!”
Okay, that last part is a little, ah, out there. Otherwise, there you have it, Thorne: Leonardo DiCaprio, in the rain — a few years from now and that Golden Popcorn could be yours!
